The Original Black Knight was Percy of Scandia, a foppish nobleman who was secretly Camelot’s greatest protector. As the Black Knight, he wielded an ebon blade forged by Merlin from a fallen star. Whomever held this blade could never be killed, except by a weapon forged from the same star. Sadly, in the twilight days of Camelot, a dying Mordred managed to stab Percy in the back with a dagger formed from the star, ending his life.

The Black Knight’s legacy was passed on throughout the generations. In the modern day, a man named Dane Whitman took up the Ebon Blade as the new Black Knight. A member of the Avengers, he was eventually undone by a curse on the blade itself and turned a veritable statue. Dane’s sweetheart resolved to save him and conjured the spirit of the original Black Knight. Inhabiting Dane’s body, this legend tells of a new threat from the undead Mordred. Unless he can stop him, it means the final triumph of evil.
